Giants coach Joe Judge has said earlier in the week that Barkley would play on Sunday unless something caused a setback at practice or in the hours leading up to the game.

I’m going to go in there, 私は (に行く) sit down and I’m going to say, ‘I’m going to do whatever the team wants me to do,’ and whatever they believe is the best thing for me and for the team and if they feel like it’s ready for me to go, then I’m ready to go,” Barkley told reporters Friday.


If they feel like they think I should wait it out a little bit, then I’ll wait it out a little bit.

Barkley suffered the torn ACL in the second game of the 2020 season against the Chicago Bears. He was carted off the field and the lack of dominant running back in the backfield hampered the Giants throughout the rest of the season.

He will be hoping to make as big of an impact on the offense as he’s done in years past.

The Giants’ other running backs include Devontae Booker and Gary Brightwell.
